“Jack & Yaya” (2018) A documentary film

A few months back a friend shared a Craigslist post with me, it basically said we are looking for an editor that knows what he or she is doing and needs to be gay/trans friendly. Having almost finished my documentary and having learned so much from it (especially in the post-production phase) I decided to give...

How I went from directing fiction to documentaries

It’s my father’s fault, I’ve been in love with movies since I was a little kid because of him. He raved about so many movies constantly, quoting dialogues, and telling the same stories of how and when he took my mom to see the great films of the lates 70’s and early 80’s, I would...

So we had a baby

Hey! Yes, yes, it’s been a long time since I’ve stopped by our award-winning blog (<– not true), I have a 2-month beautiful baby girl that has taken over my life, and I’m more than glad to give it to her, I was lucky enough to be able to work from home and be around her...

“Funny Pains” documentary: Post-production Vol. 9

Before you start reading please bear with me, we just had a beautiful baby girl and I haven’t slept much, so if I stop making sense or repeat myself, you’ll know what’s up. It has been the greatest time ever, I now have a family of my own. Crazy. We are currently locking in shooting...

Directing my latest music video: The lead actor.

In this case, my job was easy. Way to easy. Tony Almont aside from being a legendary singer and songwriter, he’s evolved throughout the years as an actor taking different roles in a few movies, short films, and theatrical plays. In all of the above, he has blown me away. Tony has the main quality I...

Directing my latest music video: Framing.

Tony Almont is a very close friend, but it’s weird because he’s also someone that I’ve admired since my teen years, I used to save up money to buy his band’s cassettes (yes, cassettes boys and girls) and play them all the freakin’ time, just ask my mom. I knew every song by heart and...

“Funny Pains” documentary: Post-production Vol. 6

“Be like water my friend” has to be one of my favorite quotes, it comes from the great late Bruce Lee, it refers to our ever-changing world and how we must try to adapt quickly and try to have a good time while doing so. This quote lives with me every single day. I’m still struggling...

“Funny Pains” documentary: Post-production Vol. 5

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!! Ok, I got that out of the way. Sorry. I’m in between of being very excited about the film, tired from all the hours I put into my work and thinking about being a new father in April, all the same time. The most recent cut of the doc looks great, it’ so easy now...

“Funny Pains” documentary: Post-production Vol. 4

“Fresh eyes” is the name of this past week. I stepped away from the editing station to shake off any tunnel vision I might have had during this process (after some great advice from my brother in arms, Princeton), it’s served me good because I immediately was able to point out spots in the doc...
